Manchester United striker on the move | Updates on Portsmouth, Coventry

"We are honoured that the Premier League has trusted BeIN Media Group and BeIN Sports again to be the official and exclusive broadcaster, champion and custodian of its product in the Middle East and North Africa", added Nasser Al-Khelaifi, chairman and chief executive of BeIN. It is time for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he is "not confident" of signing another player before Thursday's transfer deadline at 17:00 BST.

But he was quick to point out his United side were closest to runaway leaders Manchester City last season, even if they finished 19 points adrift.

FIFA are formulating plans for a consistent transfer deadline across world football, which would aid Premier League sides after their setback this year.

Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant all arrived at United by early July, but nobody has followed despite Mourinho's explicit desire to bring in two more players.

"My view is that, first of all, it is hard for me to believe we finished second because when I listen, when I read - not much but sometimes I do - you [the media] are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, you make them look like serial winners".

However, a move did not materialise and Mourinho must now work with the same central defensive setup as he did last season.

Guardiola says key players Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are both available to face Arsenal on Sunday, after returning to training on Monday following their respective runs to the World Cup semi-finals with Belgium and England.

"They returned on Monday", he said. It is hard for me to understand we finish second.

Premier League fans in MENA will be able to watch all 380 games per season exclusively live on BeIN, in addition to having access to comprehensive magazine programming, including pre and post-match shows, as well as daily highlights and weekly wrap-up programmes. What happened last season, we have learned and we know what to do.
